It’s unusual for former presidents to criticise their successors but the 44th POTUS broke from convention to make several derogatory swipes, from criticising Donald Trump’s mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic to claiming his words embolden mean, cruel, divisive and racist actions – Barack Obama didn’t hold back.
He took a swipe at Donald Trump’s earlier role as The Apprentice host, saying that Donald Trump hadn’t shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody except himself and his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show to give himself more attention, and then he remarked that the other day, his TV ratings were down.
And then he said that he understood that the President wanted to take full credit for the economy he inherited and no blame for the pandemic that he ignored, but that on a general rule, Donald Trump wasn’t a person who enjoyed taking responsibility for anything and that the job doesn’t work that way, and that tweeting on television doesn’t fix things and that conspiracies don’t make people’s lives better, and he continued that you have to have a strategy and you’ve got to do the work.
Barack Obama criticised Donald Trump for not taking necessary measures to protect himself from the coronavirus, like repeatedly refusing to wear a face mask, and that they were eight months into the pandemic with new cases breaking the records, and that Donald Trump wasn’t going to suddenly protect all the people, and that he can’t even take the necessary measures to safeguard himself and that he doesn’t even acknowledge that there is a problem.
And when talking about Donald Trump’s proposal that drinking bleach could help protect people from the coronavirus, Barack Obama said that perhaps we shouldn’t have had the President get on television and say that if you put some bleach in you, that might clean things up.
The mismanagement would be funny, if not absurd if it didn’t mean people losing their lives or that the economy wasn’t recovering. And on the economy, Barack Obama criticised Donald Trump’s record on the handling of his finances.
He said that Donald Trump likes to claim he built the economy and some people have given him recognition for it. And that he did inherit the longest streak of job growth in American history that they got started, but just like everything else he inherited, he fumbled it.
To be fair, if Donald Trump wasn’t so evil and full of loathing for the minorities, I would actually find him entertaining.
He really should stick to TV shows and stay out of politics because he’s not equipped to run any country and he’s a divider, not a unifier.
And for all those people out there who don’t agree, and everyone is entitled to their opinion. Maybe all those Trump supporters who have children, their children will grow up to be just like Donald Trump, then maybe then and only then they’ll realise what a pathetic specimen of a human being he really is.
Barack Obama’s speech in Florida was awesome, but I just wish everyone could hear it with an open mind, then maybe they wouldn’t vote for Donald Trump.
But of course, just because Barack Obama can articulate in complete sentences doesn’t mean anything, especially when we’re finding out every day how crooked most Government’s are.
